Grunge: Recreating the Demo - Grunge Free/GPL Template

Your Guide to Recreating Elements of the Grunge Demo for Joomla

Grunge Free/GPL Template

This area of the front page is an article. Articles appear within the Mainbody area of the front page.

Turning on Mainbody Content

This content appears on the front page because the Display Component option has been turned on in the template settings. You can find these settings by navigating to Administrator -> Extensions -> Templates Manager -> Grunge -> Advanced.

Once this is done, you can navigate to the Menu Manager by going to Administrator -> Menus -> Menu Manager. From here, you'll want to find the menu item for your home page and select it so you can access its settings. For our demo, it is located in Main Menu -> Home.

Leading Articles
Article Order

In order to show two featured articles on the front page, we placed a 3 in the Leading Articles setting within the Layout Options menu. The Article Order has been set to Article Manager Order. We also turned Linked Titles off in the Article Options menu.

Article Properties

The Grunge Free/GPL Template article is a standard article with the Featured option turned on so it appears in the front page mainbody.

Here is the Article Text we used:

<p><img alt="frontpage" border="0" class="floatleft" height="255" src=
"images/stories/demo/frontpage/painttruck.jpg" width="300"> <span class=
"article-title1">“Free, GPL Template from RocketTheme, available to download
and install today.”</span> <span class="article-title2">The second free

<p>Free templates offer a perfect opportunity to try out a RocketTheme template
without a club subscription. The same techniques and many core features are
present in free, as well as club templates.</p>
